A special meeting of the Board of Adjustment (BOA) was held on Thursday, January 11, 2018. Here is a rundown of the item of consideration:

  • VARIANCE - 309 TURNER STREET - The applicant, Leonard Farrugia, requested to vary the Land Development Ordinance (LDO) fence and gate height requirements - Section 19E - for the front yard area. The Ordinance gives specific details on what is considered the front yard and what is considered the rear yard. There is approximately 11 feet of fence in question that is currently 6 feet high and the LDO states it should be no higher in the front yard than 4 feet. The vote to deny the variance request was unanimous to deny (4-0). The applicant can go to Civil Court within 30 days of the meeting to contest the decision of the BOA.
  • The Board also approved their 2018 Meetings and Submission Date Calendar which can be found here.
